. but you've said you wouldn't support the petition by nancy pelosi. >> well, i'd like to ask leader pelosi how many discharged petitions she supported when she was speaker. i mean, the reality -- that's a little game. it's not going to be helpful. it's not going to get anything done. and no, i would never sign a discharge petition against my own speaker or my own conference. the way you do things is to negotiate. and frankly, the negotiation is going to largely involve the president of the united states and the speaker of the house of representatives. with all due respect to the other players, they're honestly less central to this. and if they can come to a deal, then i think we can avoid the fiscal cliff. >> and do you think that -- somebody put this idea out here. and this idea is really vile. i'll use the right word. i think you'll agree. here's the idea. let's go off the cliff, just for purely political reasons, nothing happens immediately, and then, you know, you all come back in session in early january, and you give the middle class a tax cut, and you give the wealthy a tax cut, the
sides. on the president's side, he's got the left. he's got nancy pelosi and several other, you know, prominent democrats pushing him from the left. boehner has a more difficult path to negotiate. he's got jim demint in the senate hollering each and every day. he's got his own problems in the house, as we've just spoken to. within the context of this, jack lew, chief of staff, along with treasury geithner, is sitting there every day trying to put something together. jack lew 30 years ago was working for tip o'neill. he knows the rough architecture of a road map towards a deal. one of the keys, especially with regard to speaker boehner is, you cannot leave your opponent, speaker boehner, hanging out there to dry, getting pummeled by his own side. you've got to come to him a little. but i agree with steve rattner, the president is not going to yield on tax rates for the wealthy. he's not going to yield on that. >> he's going to have to yield in some way. i mean, maybe it's 37% that's the top tax rate. >> yeah. >> maybe you go from $250,000 to $400,000 or $250,000 to $500,000. he's goin

with or spoke to boehner. and then met with nancy pelosi, the democratic leader on capitol hill. today we're told he had a phone call on air force one from harry reid. presumably to go over what it is their hashing out behind the scenes. a public and private scene going on here. >> they don't have to be face to face to keep the negotiations going. thank you. and as we get closer to the cliff's edge, a number of republicans in congress say they would be willing to accept tax increases on the wealthiest americans if they are accompanied by large enough spending cuts. >> one of those is tom cole who is a republican from oklahoma who joins us now live from capitol hill. fantastic to have you here on the show, congressman. >> good to be with you. >> what kind of spending cuts do you need to see, congressman, for you to be able to vote for those tax hikes on the top 2%? >> for the record i don't promote raising taxes on anybody. but if congress doesn't act they go up automatically. i'd like to take an area where we agree with the area, that we're not going to raise taxes on 98% of the american

by reported a sense tomko will not say nancy pelosi's discharge position on the middle and come bush tax cut his office tells me. >> guest: absolutely not. you don't sign a discharge position. they wouldn't be enough signatures to do it anyway. i point out the made her with speaker pelosi i didn't see any democrats signing many with cards and discharge positions and certainly never enough to get a bill out for years. that's not the right way to do it, but the idea makes a lot of sense. it doesn't violate anybody's situation, so at some point the two sets of come together. i think would make the rest of negotiations easier. each side gets a lot of credit. >> host: if you believe that, someone may cure you and say something or putting polity and politics ahead of what she believed. just go this a negotiation between the different sides and you can't have people freelancing. our chief negotiators of speaker. i have enormous confidence in him. he's come to agreements before. i recognize that. my advice is offered in private, leaked in public. i think whoever did that throw the press about the la
